Flashback Friday - Counting My Blessings!

As our family keeps growing and growing, I am reminded of how much God has blessed us! Next week we will add another precious member to our family. In about 6 1/2 years we have been given 10 wonderful grandchildren - not to mention the sons-in-law who are alright, also - with another baby to arrive in September. :) So I thought I would post pictures of the progression. Warning, there may be a cuteness overload...

This is in the summer of 2003, Max really didn't want his feet in the sand, but he was more willing than Emily!
Now we get to the Spring of 2004 and Lily has made it a trio.
That summer we got to welcome Sam. He is about two weeks old here and oblivious to this photo session.
I needed a picture for my Christmas card, so we had another made later that same year.
Ella and Cooper joined the group in 2005 and Ben in 2007. I can't believe this is the next group shot I have of all of them together - but apparently it is. I think the picture taking was beginning to get complicated about now. This picture is circa 2007.
Again, Fall of 2007 and Ryder got to make the picture. I love this one, even if Max would not cooperate with a smile, and we had to put Ben in a chair to prevent his escaping! The most recent picture of the crew if the header on my blog, thanks to Katie. It won't be long and she will have to take a new one. It's a wonderful life!

Aren't grandkids just the best?! I don't think I'll catch up to you. We sure have a bunch of cute ones! They're one of God's most gracious gifts to us!

It's great that you have such a record of the kids and how they are doubling at such a fast rate.

Such a lovely post!
